Artist's Statement

Familiar, family, home.  I am an avid walker and use walking as a means of getting to know a place, both in the city and the countryside.  Most often, these are places I am familiar with and are a part of what I consider my multi-centered sense of home.  I like to look at the way humans shape their environment and “mark their turf” through roads, paths, hedges, fields, wall, fences, posters, graffiti, etc.  I search for color, shapes and textures that define a place and that lodge in my memory.  I aim to share this experience of place in my artwork.
